Seems like there would be one. If not are there any browser add-ons to emulate it?

    If you hold Shift and hit Enter on many of the features (extrude) it will repeat.

    that does not work for a dotted line. i want to REUSE the last function. Not repeat the last command.
    if i draw a dotted line then end the line with esc.
    How do i draw another dotted line somewhere entirely different WITHOUT having to select the line/dotted line function YET again?

    Okay so found "L" and then "Q" will do as i want.

    You don't need to esc the command each line.

    It depends on how you click.

    #1 If you click/drag you will get 1 line segment

    #2 If you close a chain (by clicking the first point in the triangle for example) then it will end the chain and stay in the command

    #3 if you click you will get 1 line segment with an attached chain. Continue clicking to add more segments to the chain. When done click the last end point and it will end that chain (or double click your last point) This is basically the same as #2 but it isn't as obvious.

    When there is a yellow circle on my mouse it means i'm holding the left button.
